Arcade Fire, Eminem, the Strokes and Lil Wayne to Bring It to Bonnaroo

Fresh off their Grammy wins, Eminem and Arcade Fire will make plans to head to a Tennessee farm, but not to celebrate their award with a rustic vacation. The guys, along with the Strokes, My Morning Jacket and Lil Wayne, will headline the 10th annual Bonnaroo Festival.

The music and arts fest runs from June 9 to 12 at a 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee. It'll feature the only fest appearance of Buffalo Springfield with original members Neil Young, Stephen Stills and Richie Furay.

You'll see more than 150 bands hitting the stage, including the Black Keys, String Cheese Incident, Robert Plant & Band of Joy, Mumford & Sons, the Decemberists, Florence + The Machine, Girl Talk, Gregg Allman, Robyn, Primus and Iron & Wine. A highlight of the four-day music extravaganza will be Dr. John and the Original Meters performing their 1974 album Desitively Bonnaroo, after which the festival was named—a fitting tribute to the 10th edition of the fest.

Although the lineup was just announced, you don't have to worry about sold-out tickets; they go on sale February 19 at noon EST.
